New Divvy Features Available Starting February 1st

Divvy bike share system is rolling out a series of new fare options and benefits on Thursday, February 1. The new options include a $3 “Single Ride,” a new “Explorer Pass,” and 15 minutes of additional ride time for annual members.

The brand new $3 Single Ride option will help commuters quickly get around town and enable Chicago residents to easily try the system before committing to an annual membership. For the low cost of $3 riders can get a 30-minute ride to and from any of the more than 570 Divvy stations, including more than 200 that are within a quarter of mile of a CTA or Metra station.

The new $15 “Explorer Pass” will enable recreational riders to take longer rides of up to three hours (up from the standard 30-minute ride) over a 24-hour period, to more fully experience the city. From a trip down the 606 to the full lakefront trail, beautiful bike rides around Chicago are easier than ever. The standard $9.95 24-hour pass will no longer be offered.

Finally, all annual Divvy members will immediately have access to extended 45-minute rides at no additional cost, up from the current ride time of 30 minutes.

In addition to these new products and pricing changes, Divvy is simplifying the overage fee structure to a flat rate overage fee of $3 for 30 additional minutes across all fare options.

Divvy is operated by the bike share company Motivate International, Inc. under contract with the Chicago Department of Transportation (CDOT).

To learn more about the new product options, riders can visit The Explorer Pass and Single Ride pass will be available at Divvy kiosks and through the Transit app starting February 1.
